How'd She DO That? tips for Rooted in Nature card:

  • Stamps:  Rooted In Nature (146479w or 146482c)
  • Paper:  
    • Whisper White Thick (5-1/2” x 8-1/2" card base)
    • Whisper White (4" x 5-1/4", 1-1/4" x 3-1/4" greeting, scrap for leaf)
    • Nature's Poem Designer Series Paper (4” x 1")
  • Ink:  Crumb Cake, Mint Macaron, Soft Suede 
  • Other:  Big Shot, Nature's Roots Framelits Dies, Nature's Twine, Copper Metallic Thread, Leaves Trinkets, SNAIL, Glue Dots, Stampin' Dimensionals, sticky note
  • Masking Technique:  
    1. On white 5" x 5-1/4" panel, stamp “wood” image with Crumb Cake ink. 
    2. Stamp again on a sticky note (near top where the “sticky” area would be).  Create a mask by cutting image from sticky note. 
    3. Place "mask" over the first stamped image (pulling it down just a smidgen). 
    4. Stamp leaf images over mask and partially on white panel.  Stamp again without reinking.
    5. Remove sticky note to reveal leaves peeking out under the wood image.


Tips to complete card:

  • Lay down some SNAIL adhesive over wood image (center, right edge). Wrap metallic thread around three fingers (3-4 times), pull off and press onto the adhesive. 
  • Adhere DSP strip over thread.  Lay down some SNAIL on top half of DSP.  Pull 3 threads from 10-11” of twine, wrap around fingers, pull off and press onto the adhesive.   
  • Adhere leaf die cut with glue dots.  Adhere greeting with Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Adhere completed panel to folded Whisper White card base.  Then use a Glue Dot to adhere copper leaf trinket.

The Rooted in Nature Bundle creates more than meets the eye.   Great for techniques, like masking and more.  Fabulous for any card maker!  Add it to your shopping bag today (see shopping links below)!
